Magic fakis

If you ever get this far, 3- 400 km from almost anywhere, it's more the culture that allures you, than the place in itself. The people here are Fulanis, and Muslims, but Muslims in their own special way. Central in their beliefs are the fakis, living holy men, who work through powerful potions. These potions all serve different purposes in life, from success to health. The fakis travel extensively to collect the necessary ingredients to their potions.
